The evolution of the web. Photo courtesy of Blockgeeks Web 3.0 is still being defined but experts believe it will create a deeply indexed information superhighway not only serving its users with a unique experience based on preference, but it will also support an army of artificially intelligent virtual agents capable of analyzing petabytes of unstructured data and returning actionable results. Sounds brilliant, but hard realities like the one-size-fits all cloud solutions offered by AWS and the relative immutability of the speed of light, our current system would crumble under the weight of Web 3.0.

On the one hand, investors are worried about the broader macroeconomic slowdown, and on the other, you have the strongest job market in the United States’ recent 50-year history. 136,000 new jobs were added, but I assume some will be lost in the next few months as The We Company cuts jobs and the billion-dollar loss-making companies go bankrupt. Despite poor manufacturing data, investors think job growth has cushioned the economy against rising uncertainty, trade tensions, and the changing geopolitical order.
